Open Book: The Inside Track to Law School Success, 2E is a book that every JD and LLM law student needs to read, either before classes start or as they get going in their 1L year. Now in an expanded second edition, the book explains in a clear and easygoing, conversational manner what law professors expect from their students both in classes and exams. The authors, award-winning teachers with a wealth of classroom experience, give students an inside look at law school by explaining how, despite appearances to the contrary, classes connect to exams and exams connect to the practice of law. Open Book introduces them to the basic structure of our legal system and to the distinctive features of legal reasoning. To prepare students for exams, the book explains in clear and careful detail what exams are designed to test. It then devotes a single, clearly written chapter to each step of the process of answering exams. It also contains a wealth of material, both in the book and digitally, on preparing for exams. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Open Book comes with a free suite of 18 actual law school exams in Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Property and Torts, written and administered by law professors. These exams include not only questions, but: (1) annotations from the professors explaining what they were looking for; (2) model answers written by the professors themselves; and (3) actual student answers, with professor comments that explain why certain answers were stronger of weaker. As Open Book explains, there is no better way to prepare for exams than by practicing, and these unique materials will enable students to get the most out of their pre-exam practice.

I don't know how to do that yet, but I will learn. The purpose of Learning Life is to empower learning. The book takes a holistic approach to the goals of academic and personal achievement, integrating cross-disciplinary understandings from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and ancient mind-body traditions, to support greater life mastery. Learning is a process of going from not knowing to knowing, from not being able to do to being able to do. Learning Life provides a specific strategy to turn possibilities into realities. Written with humor, based on sound research and best practices, the book shows how to make the process of learning and growth more efficient, more effective, and more fun. As with more conventional works on achievement, this book covers information on academic skills, time management, financial planning, and related topics. More importantly, however, it integrates unique elements, rooted in evidence-based research, to enhance learner self-efficacy and positive expectancy for success (the belief that you can succeed if you try). The book builds on three foundation practices - establishing clear goals, building mindful awareness, and focusing on quality. These foundations are a central aspect of the text, an approach to learning developed over years of working with many students in diverse contexts. The text also emphasizes self-reflection, problem solving, use of data and feedback, and making constructive change in all areas of life. It is about building an effective life. Ultimately the information and skills are applied in an active research format, based on a learning-by-doing orientation, which focuses on a personal change process related to academic/life success. Taken together the book's 18 chapters provide the basis for effective learning, improved life skills, and targeted applications in the pursuit of educational objectives, better health, career goals, improved relationships, and a meaningful life. The book is engaging, readable, evidence-based, classroom tested, and effective. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to build a successful life, live with greater happiness, and cultivate even more gifts to give to the world.

Recognizing that law students operate under severe time constraints, Professor Calleros employs a reassuring, accessible style that makes points quickly and clearly.

Law School Exams: Preparing and Writing to Win offers techniques for maximizing scores on several types of essay questions, as well as on multiple-choice and other questions. Exam anxiety is tackled by a helpful, positive perspective: the right amount of stress can serve as a motivator. Students get help in reducing anxiety to a productive level by learning how to place exams into proper perspective. Stress-management techniques are introduced, including, stretching, meditation, and listening to motivational music. The Second Edition introduces new sample flow charts into the presentation, and additional examples, questions, and sample answers appear throughout the text.
